About the concert:
Diana Gameros is a Latin singer/songwriter who performs songs of love, longing, and hope. She returned to perform music from the new documentary film Dear Homeland that traces her experience as an undocumented immigrant. Originally from Ciudad Juárez and now living in San Francisco, Gameros creates inspiring music that reflects the 21st century experiences of a young indie artist at the borderlands between cultures, languages, and genres. Whether teasing every ounce of expression from her acoustic guitar or bringing people to their feet with her dynamic full band, Gameros transfixes listeners with her soaring vocals, impressive musicianship and captivating stage presence. Gameros was born to a musical family where she was surrounded by traditional Mexican songs of love and revolution. Her Latin American inspirations — including contemporary artists like Bebel Gilberto, Fabulosos Cadillacs and Café Tacvba — are woven into her musical DNA.
Gameros made her debut with 2013’s Eterno Retorno (Eternal Return), and has performed an NPR Tiny Desk Concert, with both the San Francisco Symphony and Oakland Symphony, toured with Mexican pop star Nataila Lafourcade, and performed an opening slot with Brazilian song legend Bebel Gilberto.
